The paper explores the conflicts between love and social class in Emily Bronte's novel "Wuthering Heights," focusing on the relationship between Heathcliff and Cathy Earnshaw. The paper explains how love was subordinate to class in the era of the novel.
From the Paper:"Love And Social Class: The Central Conflict of "Wuthering Heights." In Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" the reader is introduced to the characters of Heathcliff and Catherine, Cathy Earnshaw Linton, two people who despite significant differences in their social class and relative status love one another with a passion that defies convention. As Deborah Epstein Nord suggests, Heathcliff is depicted by Bronte as the romantic yet dangerous gypsy, a person who enters Wuthering Heights as a parentless street urchin."
